REACH MEDIA syndicated morning show host TOM JOYNER received an honorary doctorate of letters degree from his alma mater, TUSKEGEE UNIVERSITY, on SUNDAY, MAY 8th. JOYNER was also the featured speaker and spoke before nearly 500 graduates at the institution's 126th Annual Spring Commencement exercises.
JOYNER encouraged graduates to continue TUSKEGEE'S mission to serve. "A lot of people are educated, but won't offer a hand to serve others," said JOYNER. "They're worth a lot of money, but not worth anything if they don't serve. This town allowed me to dream, prepared me to seek my dream and live it. I was a paper boy. That taught me to get up early. Now, I get up early for THE TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW."
